I think he's really great in this role. I'm interested to see what the pope's M.O. is. He definitely is not liked by many early on.I watched the first episode and enjoyed it. I read negative reviews for it but wanted to decide for myself and liked it, so far.
Being raised Catholic is maybe what is making this interesting for me. Never been a Jude Law fan but he works in this role, not that there would ever be a Pope as young as he is, or as nice looking (cute butt ).
